Working now with the archives at the Charles Babbage Institute on researching the origination and rise of rotating magnetic storage from 1942 to 1961.

For twenty years have been researching eccentric early American and British automotive engineers (ie JW Christie, Harry Knox and Philip Johnson) that made the transition during WWI or between the wars to military automotive design.

Anker
Jorgensen
History of User Interfaces to Computers
Associate Professor
IT University of Copenhagen

My name is Anker Helms Jorgensen, currently employed as Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen. In the last 1-2 years I've become interested in the history of user interfaces to computers. I've written a couple of papers on the topic (see one reference below), but they are from an internalist perspective. Coming from the computer science camp, I'm interested in getting to know the discourse of proper historians. I'm currently struggling with two sides of diversity in my project: creating a feasible bridge between a host of possible research questions and the vast amount of sources available. My background is an MSc in Computer Science and a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I've been working as a systems developer, consultant, teacher, supervisor and researcher in User Interfaces, Usability and HCI for the last 30 years.
